Georgia, Alabama, and now Missouri - these are just some of the states that are pushing extremist abortion bans through state legislatures these past weeks. Many are extreme by design in order to provoke a favorable Supreme Court battle, but access to reproductive care in these states has already been in decline for years - particularly in poor and marginalized communities that are getting farther from the nearest clinic.
Action: Donate to support clinic access, and share the link
The National Network of Abortion funds provides access and financial and logistical support to women seeking abortions in states where conservatives have made life difficult and dangerous. They support a nationwide network of clinics on the front lines, and have put together an ActBlue fund to support these states most recently affected:
Please DONATE if you are able, and SHARE the link with friends if you can't. It's time to be loud in our support for women's rights.
You can also use social media to amplify the ongoing #YouKnowMe campaign, in which women have been sharing personal stories about abortion. You can retweet stories or use the hashtag yourself: https://www.bbc.com/news/48286795
